disability confidentiality

disclosure of disability and accommodation needs is not released to professors without the completion and signing of a consent form each semester. disability support services, however, may communicate student accommodations needs to other departments and offices (registrar, student affairs, academic affairs, housing, facilities) on a need-to-know basis while arranging for accommodations. otherwise, information or anything a student may discuss with dss staff will not be shared with parents or other interested parties, unless the student is present for the discussion or gives permission in advance.
